     B7
Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee

Help me find a party that tried to get in touch with me
    E
She could not leave a number but I know who placed the call
          B7                                          E
'Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall

B7
Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie

She's the only one who'd call me here from Memphis Tennessee
    E
Her home is on the south side, high upon a ridge
B7                                      E
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge

Solo: B7, B6, B7, B6, B7, B6, B7, B6, E, E7, E, E7, B7, B6, B7, E


     B7
Last time I saw Marie she was wavin' me goodbye

With "hurry-home" drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
    E
But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
    B7                                         E
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

B7
Help me, information, more than that I cannot add

Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
  E
Marie is only six years old, information please
B7                                            E
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee
